Fighting Jewish Genocide

Below are just few names of pregnant Israeli women slaughtered by terror groups such as Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad: Yael Shorek was nine-months pregnant; Gadi and Tzippi Shemesh were killed immediately after having a scan of their unborn twins; Avital Wolanski was six-months pregnant; Rivka Holzberg was five-months pregnant; Tali Hatuel was eight-months pregnant, and Tehiya Bloomberg was five-months pregnant.

In 2003 the World Union for Progressive Judaism asked UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan and the UN Human Rights Commission to condemn the Hamas’ charter as a violation of the Convention against Genocide. A year later, three brave Arab intellectuals, Jawad Hashim, Shakir al-Nabulsi and Lakhdar Lafif sent a request to the UN Security Council, urging the establishment of an international tribunal for the prosecution of Islamist incitement against Jews, Muslim “apostates” and Christians.

Abraham Joshua Heschel wrote that it was words, not machinery, that produced Auschwitz. Now the call for Israel’s destruction echoes through schools and mosques, textbooks and newspapers, TV series and pseudo “documentaries.” And not only in the Arab world. Thanks to satellite channels, Hezbollah’s al-Manar and Hamas’ al-Aqsa TV stations can beam their incitement and hatred for the Jews into European living rooms, radicalizing Muslim immigrants.

That’s why Israel and its Western allies must launch a campaign to charge organizations and leaders who commit incitement, enlisting the help of attorneys, journalists and writers to testify on the endless litanies of paranoia and genocidal perversion. Such people risk their career and life daily by denouncing the blood libels, and Israel should support them.

Western parliaments would politically validate the charges and Europe must be urged to cut its business dealing with Tehran if the mullahs continue to incite against the Jews. Irwin Cotler, Canada’s former minister of justice and attorney general, suggested that Ahmadinejad and other incitement leaders should be placed on a “watch list” by Western countries preventing their entrance as “inadmissible persons” (Qaradawi is already banned in the UK and US.)

Brave groups, such as UN Watch, can support the battle in legal forums. They could launch a counter campaign against UNESCO’s racist policy on Judaism’s holy sites (Rachel’s tomb and the Cave of Patriarchs in Hebron were just designed as “mosques.”) In 2009, a similar campaign prevented Farouk Hosni, the Egyptian minister who said that he “would burn Israeli books himself if found in Egyptian libraries” from becoming UNESCO’s head.

Moreover, human rights groups should be bombarded with the untold Israeli statistics: The 17,000 people wounded in terror attacks; the 1,600 civilians killed; the 12,000 rockets fired on southern Israeli cities; the fact that some 40% of wounded Israelis will remain with permanent disabilities.

There are wounded heroes who just want to tell their story. They should be invited to speak in the courts because they are the survivors of current-day genocide.

In European faculties, there are still brave academicians who can denounce Islamist-supporting speakers among them. An example of incitement is the book “The Matza of Zion” written by former Syrian defense minister Mustafa Tlas, in which he claims that the Jewish matzot was made from Arab blood. Still, the West maintains shameful partnerships with Arab libraries holding this book. Western democracies must be urged to rescind these cultural deals.

This is an historical battle that Israel can win with the support of Westerners who still care about the fate of their civilization. To the Spanish fascists who were saying “Viva la muerte!”, the Republicans replied: “No pasarán.” We should offer the same response to contemporary death cultists. As history has taught us, while it begins with Jews, it does not end with Jews.

    M. Ahmadinejad,is'nt that the one with a brain tumor?or was it the other fellah.

    Actually, it is islam that is a disease and probably is incurable. Hundreds of millions of people are taught from birth to despise Jews and Christians. The koran is mein kampf for muslims. A tenth of the content is devoted to condemning Jews. The rest of the screed is also disgusting in terms of what muslims are told they must do to apostates, women, homosexuals, and all other unfortunate dhimmis. We are dealing with a global menace that has been at war with western civilization for 1400 years. Its founder, the pedophile mohamad, is probably responsible for more death and misery than hitler and stalin combined.

    It is clear the hate for Jews and Christians or anyone who doesn't bow to Islam, you know the ones who steal , kill and destroy all people who won't bow. they can twist the scripture and say what they may,,,but the G-d of Israel warned us of this, and also promised to destroy all who come against Israel and that He would destroy them. Always giving examples and warnings that men don't heed..to their own destruction. Puting our faith in the G-d of Israel and standing on HIS Promises is the only way..Israel will STAND forever and of it's Kingdom there will be NO END…I see it coming as scripture is being fulfilled so quickly and the enemies of Israel and those who stand with the enemies of G-d and Israel will be destroyed…their choice..

    In 1980, PLO Terrorist Leader Arafat explained the peace process: "Peace for us means the destruction of Israel . We are preparing for an all-out war, a war which will last for generations."

    Egypt created the PLO. The PLO Charter calls for the destruction of Israel.

    On the same day Oslo "Peace" Accords were signed in 1993, PLO leader, Arafat stated: "Since we cannot defeat Israel in war we do this in stages. We take any and every territory that we can of Palestine, and establish sovereignty there and we use it as a springboard to take more. When the time comes, we can get the Arab nations to join us for the final blow against Israel."

    After the Declaration of Principles was signed by the PLO and Israel in 1994, Arafat said in a Johannesburg mosque that the agreement was identical to the Hudabiya peace treaty signed in 629 between Muhammad and the Qurayish tribe of Mecca. A temporary, phony peace agreement made to deceive, which is broken once Muslims became strong enough to attack and defeat the hated infidel enemy. Muhammad said: "War is deception" (Bukhari: V4B52N268). Arafat to a Fatah youth group in 1998: "The Peace of Oslo is the Peace of Hudabiya."

    The Arab League's Charter states its goal is to eradicate the Zionist entity.

    The US/EU/UK/UN dirty, murderous "peace" they seek for Israel, is a Second Holocaust of Jews.

    The universe (Mother Nature) has conferred some attributes to a group of people. The rest of the world is jealous. That is how anti-Semitism was born. Christians and Muslims have only added oil to the fire. The west (whites) and the Muslims won’t rest until The Jews are gone. They cannot overcome their complex of…
